Hutchison Mamba being stretched
Spent a rainy, holiday weekend morning stretching tubulars. It was like wax on and wax off. First the stretched Hutch tire was moved to a new set of ENVEs we’re demoing, and another tire put on the stretching rim. It’s these routines, that lead to September, when kids go back to school, road season ends, and CX begins.
It’s a return to what we know, which is a return to things we have grown to love and trust.

Like the barrier drills practiced in a school yard, stretching a tubular is a return to a structure that gives room to practice, and learn and grow.
Back to bike school is the theme of Issue 16 of our magazine and we’re working on that now.
